Pizza Dress is Perfect for Pizza The Hutt’s Wedding
Costume designer Olivia Mears aka “Taco Belle” aka “AvantGeek” is at it again with a cool dress that looks like a pizza. When she’s standing up in her pizza dress it looks like a ball gown of some sort. She posted a few pics of the awesome dress, but my favorite is the one where she is standing in front of the throne made out of Dominos boxes, which I shall call The Pizza Throne. I will take what is mine with feta and bacon.

Target Celebrates Mario Kart 8 with Mario Shopping Karts
Target is going crazy for Nintendo. The company has started giving more than 650 stores across the country a Mario Kart-themed makeover. This is all to promote the launch of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch on April 28th. This theme will include things like Mario-themed bollards outside the store, a countdown timer sound when you cross the start line at the entrance, and shopping carts decorated to look like karts. Better stock upon shells and banana peels so you can climb in that cart and wage war inside of a Target near you.

Autonomous.ai SmartDesk 2 Adjustable Standing Desk Review
I’ve had a crappy desk for as long as I can remember. It was too small, uncomfortable and wobbly. I worked on that same desk for nearly a decade, mostly because I didn’t think anything else would be better.
